Cella's Café - Puebla, Mexico
The city of Puebla is the capital of the state of Puebla and one of the five most important colonial cities in Mexico. The city, located East of Mexico City, is found in the valley of Puebla, also known as the Valley of Cuetlaxcoapan. It is surrounded by mountains and volcanoes, notably the Pico de Orizaba - the highest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in North America with a height of 5,636 meters; and the Popocatepelt - an active volcano and second highest peak in Mexico with a height of 5,426 meters. Puebla was also named World Heritage Site in 1987 and is today famous for its mole poblano, chiles en nogada and Talavera pottery - which you can see in this picture.
